today's findings and ID request
    #1739244 - 07/22/03 06:42 PM (20 years, 8 months ago)

on my foray today i found:

Lobster mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum growing on what looks to be Russula xerampelina or R. emetica)

Faun mushrooms (Pluteus cervinus)

and a polypore that stumped me (no pun intended--it was, in fact, growing on a stump) perhaps you guys can help. I found it growing on a partially buried stump (most likely sycamore or cottonwood, possibly maple or willow, judging by surrounding trees) in a pile of decaying leaves and sycamore bark. There were actually two shelf-like caps growing right next to each other, fused together. The radius of the caps was about 2.5 in. the center of the caps was elevated and what i would describe as "lumpy", w/ little warty dark spots (which i hypothesized might be cottonwood seeds that somehow got stuck in it...?) the cap slopes down, out from the center, then slopes back up a bit to meet with the rounded white margin. There are differences in color on the cap, over all it is several shades of a smoky brown color, in rings much like the cross-section of a tree trunk. The rings are more noticeable toward the margin. The underside, which slopes gently down from the margin to the stump and is white, and velvety smooth, bruising a similar smoky grey-brown to the color of the cap. The spores seem to be a darker brown, like cocoa powder. that's about all i know, no pics, sorry. Any theories?

If the pores on the underside bruise when scratched my first guess would be Ganoderma applanatum, the Artists Conk.

Happy mushrooming!

That would be cool if you did indeed find an Artist's Conk. You can supposedly draw pictures on the underside using a sharp stick, and the picture will stay, and not fade. :cool:

anecdotaly; you can also use them to make a verry good dark ink...

[edit: i'm a little drunk and it caught my attention that the word "anecdotaly" looked odd. i checked my dictionary and it would seem that the correct word it "anecdoticaly", which looks even more odd...]

thank you toxicman, i had a feeling you could help. I'm pretty sure it is the artists conk. The color in the pic in my field guide seems a tiny bit off (but it says the color is variable), but the description fits perfectly. When I checked for bruising, the pore surface registered a perfect fingerprint, good enough to identify me by, i imagine... i need to go grab this thing tomorrow and draw on it. Any suggestions for artistic content?

anecdotaly sounded good to me. anecdoticaly is pure madness.
